Getting Started

What You Need to Know

Is Counseling Confidential?

Yes! Your conversations stay confidential and private unless one of the following happens (1) you give us written permission to talk to someone else, or (2) you express intent to hurt yourself, to hurt others others, or tell us about minors, the elderly, or those with a disabilty who are being harmed.

How Do I Pay for This?

This can be different for everyone and for different reasons. However most people pay out of pocket or use their insurance benefits. It can be confusing sometimes to figure out the best way to do this. If you have questions about how to pay for counseling just ask us.

What Will We Do?

During your first visit we review paperwork that enables us to understand your unique needs for counseling. We then usually meet once a week or so for about an hour. Together we develop an individual plan that addresses your unique needs and reasons for counseling. We work on that plan until we think we’ve solved it. That’s it!
